Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline
New study ranks Alzheimer’s as third leading cause of death in the United States, after heart disease and cancer.

Brain function not what it used to be?
Are you losing your memory? Can’t focus or concentrate? Shrouded in brain fog? Do you fatigue easily? Have you lost your motivation or zest for life? Have people told you there is nothing wrong with you or you are just getting older? Have you not been the same since a head injury?
If so, your brain may be growing old too fast, or degenerating. Modern diets, a stressful lifestyle, and environmental toxins all take their toll on the brain.
SCI (Subjective Cognitive Impairment)
These are the signs that something isn’t right. SCI is when you begin to realize your forgetting things but you’re able to “hide” it from those around you. It could be a name. Or you reach for a word and can’t find it. It could be you walk into a room and for a moment you forget why you’re there.
New research shows that memory loss as we age is NOT normal. These are early signs of cognitive decline.
MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment)
SCI progresses into MCI. MCI is when those who know you best can tell you’re starting to forget things and have difficulties. By the time you reach MCI, the condition has often been developing for up to twenty years. It is slow moving but relentless. At this stage, the saying goes “Time Is Tissue” and there’s no time to lose.
MCI develops into Alzheimer’s when the symptoms are obvious enough for traditional diagnostic criteria for diagnosing Alzheimer’s to be applied. By this time the disease has been progressing for years.
The time to identify this progression is as early as possible. Fortunately, using new tests, we can pick up cognitive decline years before the symptoms ever begin. Sometimes 20 years before they begin.
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most significant global health threats we face today. It is an ailment that, as our population ages, could quickly grow to become a worldwide epidemic. However, we now understand that Alzheimer’s disease is not a genetic destiny. With new protocols developed by Dr. Garland Glenn of The Carroll Institute and vanguard Alzheimer’s researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen, patients exhibiting early signs of cognitive decline are finally able to take their brain health back into their own hands. Real restoration from this debilitating condition is possible.
Warning Signs of Brain Degeneration
How do you know if your brain isn’t working? See if some of these signs and symptoms of brain degeneration apply to you:
- Memory loss
- Lack of motivation, drive or passion
- Brain Fog
- Tire easily working, reading, driving, etc.
- Depression, anxiety
- Poor focus and concentration
- Difficulty learning
- Fatigue in response to certain foods or chemicals
